Tempstar Heating and Cooling Products is one of the brands manufactured by International Comfort Products, a subsidiary of United Technologies (UTC). Other International Comfort Product brands include Arcoaire and Heil.
UTC is also the parent company of Carrier. In short, although you may not have heard the name Tempstar before, it is part of a large family of well-known and respected HVAC brands.
Tempstar produces a full line of HVAC equipment, including heat pumps, gas and oil furnaces, packaged units, air purifiers, and ductless systems. They offer up to 10 Year No Hassle Replacement warranties on many of their premium products.
Similar to Heil and Arcoaire, Tempstar offers three model lines: Performance, QuietComfort, and Deluxe. The Performance series aims to provide budget-friendly, efficient heating and cooling.
Performance air conditioners offer SEER ratings up to 17 and heat pumps with SEER ratings up to 15 and HSPF up to 8.5. The highest-efficiency Performance heat pump and air conditioner models do carry the Energy Star certification for efficiency.
The QuietComfort series adds some features, like No Hassle Replacement warranties, communicating capability, and enhanced sound reduction. Linking a QuietComfort heat pump or air conditioner to the Observer communicating system can offer more precise control and remote access. But for higher efficiency, there’s the Deluxe series.
The Deluxe heat pumps and air conditioners offer up to 19 SEER and 11 HSPF, with noise levels as low as 56 decibels. These highly efficient units incorporate two-stage or five-stage compressors and multi-speed or variable-speed fans.
This multi-speed, multi-stage operation improves the Deluxe models’ ability to control humidity and keep inside temperatures steady.
As for gas furnaces, Tempstar also offers Performance, QuietComfort, and Deluxe lines. Performance series models come with a 20-year limited warranty on the heat exchanger, while most of the QuietComfort and Deluxe models step that up to a lifetime warranty.
Tempstar’s gas furnaces come in a range of efficiencies, from the standard 80% AFUE all the way up to the 98% AFUE rating of their premium modulating gas furnace with variable speed blower.
Overall, Tempstar delivers the performance and advanced features you’d expect from a UTC brand, with a wide range of products to suit a variety of needs and budgets. Our Comfort Consultants can help you determine which HVAC system will be best for your home.
